This is your one-stop information stop for where I’ve been published.  I’ve got links and info on the anthologies featuring my short stories, in addition to information about my current projects.  Stay tuned – hopefully I’ll have to update often!

The Lokana Chronicles

TPMTLCAs the Crown Prince of Lokana, nineteen-year-old Vatren is expected to follow in his father’s corrupt footsteps by marrying a wealthy noblewoman and filling the royal coffers to the brim.  But the prince has other ideas, and when he falls in love with a peasant named Namora, his father threatens to deny him the crown and live forever.  Though Vatren knows his father is serious, he insists that he will marry for love or not at all.

But there are bigger problems facing the kingdom than succession.

When the king executes an entire village, a long-simmering rebellion threatens to explode into all-out war.  Led by Namora’s brother, Lokana’s malcontents want revenge on the royal family, and they don’t care which member pays the price.  Vatren must find a way to protect his family and atone for his father’s actions, or he could lose everything he’s ever cared about…forever.

The first book in the series, The Price of Mercy, is currently being rewritten and will hopefully be available in fine bookstores everywhere in the near future.

Stephen King takes 1,200 pages to tell a story.  We do it in half a page.  Sometimes we do it better.

Four hundred sixteen.  That’s all it takes to tell a story.  A scary story.  At least here.  Every tale of horror and suspense in this book is exactly 416 words long (you can spend your time counting or reading – that’s up to you).  Each story was written by a member of
